The Week in Thrift

October 25, 2008

Salvation Army:

I think those dingle balls are made from bingo dabber tops.

Value Village:

Seniors’ Association rummage sale. This awesome sale has everything:

books

magazine, lots of records

a room of Christmas treasures

housewares, jewelry, clothing, furniture, electronics, crafts, baking, snacks

all at crazy cheap prices.

Maybe you remember that last year at this sale I passed up buying a mounted fish for a buck.

This year I succumbed. This is no Bigmouth Billy Bass (though it sure looks like it) – this is the real, non-singing, deal. Just be careful not to cross me or you’re getting it for Christmas.

    Curious; is this the same mounted fish or did someone else donate one?!
